and he still couldn't get some of the sitting initiatives such as immigration reform. it would have been a lot easier in a democratic house. >> he did get health care. >> yes. with no republican votes. but, alex, i think the point that he said it's interesting, suspect it? he's humbler. i found that interesting. in order to be humble, the opposite had to be true. i think that was an interesting observation. >> they come in idealistic and hopeful. let's face it, they do get beaten down by what they face. what other challenges does the president face in trying to push the boulder up the hill. >> one of the biggest challenges is restoring trust between the blighted healthcare roll out and the spying. there's a lack of trust in this administration. he spoke very clearly people need to feel like they can trust their government. that will be a challenge the next couple years. the last couple of months is going to new blood in the 2014 races and give some candidates who might not have seen a fighting chance before by people who are hoping to see people in washington get work done for the first

immigration reform one of them, the enda bill that came out of there, but it's been a tough slog. you've got a few weeks left in the year, and the notion that this is going to be prioritized, there's going to be this push by bipartisan senators to get tougher sanctions on iran when the white house is explicitly saying no to me, that looks -- i just don't understand. is it the case that senators are going home to their states and people are standing up at town halls saying we need stronger sanctions on iran? why is this such a priority? >> listen, you have 47 million americans who have lost food stamp benefits, who are potentially going hungry this holiday season, you have farms that are going to shut down some time next year without a farm bill being passed. you're exactly right, there are bigger priorities. now, what my friends on both sides of the aisle will say is that, no, wait, we need to do this right now so that if the negotiations fall apart some time next year, we're right there immediately with tough, new sanctions. well, the fact is, we can pass things quicker than a lot of people

on arrival, whether it was immigration or fairness in internet sales tax. all of these measures coming over from the senate are literally wilting here, because the committee system on the house side is unwilling to take these measures up. so i think he is looking through a different lens. >> well, your colleagues on the other side of the aisle actually do have an idea that they want to put forward. and it would ease sequestration, a couple measure of the republican house caucus would like to ease sequestration by cutting social security. is that the kind of seriousness that americans are looking for out of congress, or in a way, should americans be kind of glad they're not getting a lot done because that's the kind of thing they want to do? >> well, good point. but that is -- in my view, dead on arrival, both among democrats and in the senate. to somehow say we want to ease sequestration so we can line the pockets of defense contractors and by the way we're going to do it on the backs of senior citizens in this country, is just an anathema, to me and most people in this country, generally,

're going to need strong application of anti-discrimination laws. we're going to need immigration reform that grows the economy and takes people out of the shadows. we're going to need target initiatives to close those gaps. [ applause ] but here's an opportunity point. the decades-long shifts in the economy have hurt all groups. poor and middle class, inner city and rural folks, men and women, and americans of all races. and americans of all races. and as a consequence, some of the social patterns that contribute to declining mobility that were once attributed to the urban poor -- you know, that's a particular problem for the inner city. single-parent households or drug abuse. it turns out now we're seeing that pop up everywhere. a new study shows that disparities in education, mental health, obesity, absent fathers, isolation from church, isolation from community groups, these gaps are now as much about growing up rich or poor as they are anything else. the gap in test scores between poor kids and wealthy kids is now nearly twice what it is between white kids and black kids. kids with
